Default Season Final Tally/Grade

OK folks how did your Steelers do, and how/where do you think they should improve.

copy & paste

OFFENSE:
B+ I think Ben and Willie showed great inmprovement and with a good OL the Steelers will be and offensive force next year.

DEFENSE:
B- Gaps in Dicks 3/4 blitz scheme showed up this year but I believe that was due to Tomlin's adding some cover 2 aspects to the D. I belive with another year of working together the D will be great.

SPECIAL TEAMS:
D One special teams return TD and BOO-KOO turnovers and mishaps.

ONE POSITION THAT MUST BE UPGRADED:
Defensive End! I know we need OLinemen but I am one who thinks the Steelers go as far as the defense takes them. That has been the case since I have been a Steelers fan.

OFFENSE:
A- Ben, Willie, Hines, Heath and Santonio were all big playmakers. I would give them an A+ but the porous O-line provides for the downgrade. We could be one of the most feared offenses if we fix the O-line problem.

DEFENSE:
B Tops for much of the season----but the games we lost mostly involved a comeback by our offense and a defense that couldn't stop the other team on a final drive---Arizona, Denver, Jets, Jax. (nearly Cleveland)

SPECIAL TEAMS:
C. The coverages were terrible--enough said there. Only one big return for us, but I appreciate Rossum's ability to handle the ball and make smart decisions---huge improvement over last year. Reed was money and Sepulvada is going to be the top punter in the league with few more years under his belt.

ONE POSITION THAT MUST BE UPGRADED:
Center. We need a true center. Move Mahan to guard (his natural position) and I think he will be fine. (PS I disagree on the DE----Aaron Smith and Keisel are no slouches----there are much bigger needs that DE.)

OFFENSE:
I have to divide this grade into different categories:

QB - A.
RB - A-
WR/TE - B
OL - D-
Coaching - C+. Arians hasn't been that bad, OL coach should be fired though.

DEFENSE:
DL - B
LB - D
CB - B
Safeties - Before Clark was injured - B+. After Clark was injured - C-
DC - B

SPECIAL TEAMS: - F

HEAD COACH - B+

ONE POSITION THAT MUST BE UPGRADED:
I can't list just one. DL must get more depth, 2 of the 4 linebackers must be replaced, OL will get an overhaul just because we are going to lose Faneca, possibly Starks, and who knows what Smith has left in the tank.

The SEASON isn't over yet.

I will give my grade out once we no longer have a Shot to Win it All!

I'm going to do the same. I can't give a fair assessment until our season is officially over, hopefully with a win on February 3, 2008 in Glendale, AZ!

True, but at this point, we're all 0-0 going in. We just have to hope for the best.

I understand waiting until the playoffs are over. I will even revise the list and add coaching.

OK folks how did your Steelers do, and how/where do you think they should improve.

copy & paste


COACHING:
B The Steelers record shows that mentality of the team is great. But it also shows that the Steelers are a very talented team. There were a lot of calls that just seemed odd in certain situation this year. Also the lack of variety I beleive made the Steelers easy to stop on offense. With Wiz teams always had to prepare for a trick play or two.

OFFENSE:
B+ I think Ben and Willie showed great inmprovement and with a good OL the Steelers will be and offensive force next year.

DEFENSE:
B- Gaps in Dicks 3/4 blitz scheme showed up this year but I believe that was due to Tomlin's adding some cover 2 aspects to the D. I belive with another year of working together the D will be great.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

D One special teams return TD and BOO-KOO turnovers and mishaps.
